or not our political system, whether the leaders can get together, whether they can solve big problems or are they just going to kick the can? if you look at the statements of the rating agencies who have questioned the fiscal soundness of this country, it's about our political system, not being willing or able, seemingly, to take on big tasks. >> the president may be confident about a larger plan but senate minority leader mitch mcconnell, one of the key lawmakers involved in negotiations says he thinks a $4 trillion deal is off the table. >> everything they've told me and the speaker is that to get a big package would require big tax increases in the middle of the economic situation that's extraordinarily difficult with 9.2% unemployment. it's a terrible idea. it's a job-killer. >> after last night's white house meeting, house minority leader nancy pelosi said democrats are still hopeful for a large bipartisan agreement as long as it does not do harm to the middle class. and aides to john boehner says the speaker now believes the cuts outlined by vice president biden's bipartisan gro
. if a crisis can be averted. if democrats and republicans can come to an agreement on the big fight that has been frankly smothering american politics for weeks now. president obama announced earlier today that he wants to see a deal done by tomorrow on the big debt ceiling fight that has consumed every bit of oxygen in d.c. for the last few months. the president saying tonight that congressional leaders are on the clock. they have 24 to 36 hours to get a deal done. as planning a vote that the u.s. government should not default on our debt and shut down comes down to the wire, we are inching close enough to the edge here that two of the world's major credit rating agencies have warned that our national credit rating may be downgraded as a result of this standoff. the day that the u.s. would actually hit the debt ceiling and start going into default and shutting down is august 2. but this does not mean that we have until august 2 before we lose our national credit rating. that could just happen right now. because of the uncertainty and because of how long it is taking to get this done. right
: welcome to "the daily show," my name is jon stewart. big show. big, big, big, big, big show. our guests tonight, we have on tonight's program pakistan's former president pervez musharraf. my guess is we'll have a delightful beverage and a lovely conversation. (cheers and applause) so let's begin tonight with the on going "news of the world" phone hacking scandal. to get you caught up, a seemingly simple story. ma and pa owned newspaper hacking into a murdered little girl's phone and... (laughter). ... paying the police to cover it up. has unfortunately turned ugly. (laughter) as of now, london's two top policemen at scotland yard let's call them officer blu rotton has resigned. andrew colton has been arrested and sunday tragically authorities arrested poor mrs. weasley. (laughter) wait, no that's not mrs. weasley. sorry, tragically, authorities arrested the guy from simply red. yeah, that's it. actually, arrested was rebekah brooks, the woman who ran "news of the world" during the worst of-- as the british call them-- the troubles. (laughter) brooks had already resigned her post friday,
? >> tuesday shaping up to be a very big day in parliament. in the morning we are expecting a senior policeman, including the one that put it last night, to appear before the committee. they will be questioned and questioned again about this cozy relationship. also, of course, at the handling of the original investigations into phone hacking. the biggest set piece will be in the afternoon, when they will hear from rupert and james murdock, separately from rebecca brooks, who resigned from her post at news international on friday. >> plenty going on. i know it will keep you busy. >> other stories making headlines around the world today, let's check with thailand and cambodia, ordered to withdraw their troops. the united nations highest court ordered troops to leave the land. a number of people were killed, thousands fled their homes. the postal service website has been hacked into by a group calling itself the union of free syrian hackers. they ended a message with the slogan -- the people want to finance the egyptian revolution. three people have been killed in chile. the government says that
is we have a unique opportunity to do something big. we have a chance to stabilize america's finances for a decade, for 15 years or 20 years. if we're willing to seize the moment. what that would require would be some shared sacrifice and a balanced approach that says we're going to make significant cuts in domestic spending. and i have already said i'm willing to take down domestic spending to the lowest percentage of our overall economy since dwight eisenhower. it also requires cuts in defense spending. and i've said that in addition to the $400 billion that we've already cut from defense spending we're willing to look for hundreds of billions more. it would require us taking on health care spending. and that includes looking at medicare and finding ways that we can stabilize the system so that it is available not just for this generation but for future generations. and it would require revenues. it would require, even as we're asking the person who needs a student loan or the senior citizen or, you know, people -- veterans who are trying to get by on a disability check, even as we'
without crafting the big grand compromise the president and congressionaleaders need to negotiate to raise that limit. they're demanding 2 trillion in spending cut bees made to give the president the increase he wants and the democrats any deal to cut spending has to increed an increase in tax revenue. the big question, going into tonight's meeting is whether a smaller deficit reduction deal is possible. both sides are saying it can be done. failure to do it w wld lead to economic meltdown. >> john, thank you very much. joining me to discuss the road ahead is the white house chief of staff bill ley. thank you very much for joining us. you've heard what jon said. you've seen what speaker boehner did. what's your relakes to the deal nono >> it's very unfortunate the speaker made the comments he has. the president is committed to solving this deficit possible for the future of america. he's looking forward to the meeting to play out his case. he's saying, it is time now to make the tough decisions. in this town, generally they kick the can. nobody wants to do the tough things. he's committed
today? >> this wouldn't be the big deal if this is the only day, but this is day after day the spring into the summer. then let's pile on a top of humidity. that gets to the people and aggravates everyone. this is where the center of the heat is. right over the top of the eastern half of the country with the exception not being up in the great lakes. this is already the heat index. what time is it? it's 10:00. we are at 105 already in louisville. areas of memphis, nashville and st. louis are right behind. the worst has been centered over the ohio river valley and southern indiana. later today, this is my forecast heat index. this is how hot i'm predicting it's going to get. the worst is up here with the dew points at the highest. we are thinking 110 in louisville, 110 in nashville. i've got my money on 115 in memphis as the hottest heat index in the country. it goes from oklahoma city to the east coast. this is one of the first humid days we had from new york to deep, deep baltimore, raleigh. you go down the coast with no exceptions. this is historic in oklahoma city. we now had 13 da
house correspondent, and from cnn money. go big or go home. what is the republican push back? >> reporter: we're going to be finding out very shortly because house speaker john boehner will take to the cameras at 1:30 eastern essentially in the rebuttal to the news conference from the president earlier today. but the push back for republicans has been tax increases. you have republicans who have insisted on no tax increases, and democrats that insisted if there will be spending cuts, to achieve trillions of dollars in deficit savings. they don't want to abandon -- if there are going to be cuts to programs that are huge, they want to be able to say we pushed for sacrifices from wealthy americans and corporations. they are trying to strike kind of a just right agreement. because on one hand, you have a lot of republicans, and many of them who were swept into power in the last election saying we're going to cut spending and make government smaller, so the idea of tax increases, and certainly this is something a lot of them literally pledged they will not do, randi, it would forc
in my book, they are too big, too corrupt, too destructive, too powerful. here in the u.s., there are basically five media companies that own almost all media. and in the uk, it's no different. rupert murdoch and his company simply had too much power. that's why we're seeing high ranking people, even prime ministers, even the head of scotland yard, tied up with this. they had so much power, they had to be kowtowed too. >> lisa bloom, we appreciate that. thank you very much. >> thank you. >>> this scandal is reaching deep now into rupert murdoch's inner circle, and you can be sure that the man at the top is feeling the pressure. murdoch has ads running in seven british papers through monday saying, quote, we are sorry for the phone hacking scandal at the "news of the world." the popular tabloid he just shut down. and here's what he said in his own words. the scandal is widening to another murdoch paper, "the sunday times," and now even the fbi is opening an investigation. the allegations, hacking the personal phones of public figures, and the not so public, from murder vi
economic soundness to this country. that take as big deal. a lot of pain. democrats are upset the president talked about pain on their side of the ail and republicans are saying no way will we give tax relief to middle income americans. they want to continue tax relief to the wealthy. everyone agrees a number around $4 trillion will make a serious debt on our deficit. it will send a statement to the world that the u.s. has gotten ahold of their fiscal problems and they are moving forward. it will give confidence to the american people that we can move forward to bring economic soundness. that's the president's commitment. >> 6:00 on the east coast. welcome to "morning joe." look at that nice live look at times square. joe is looking spify today. he went shopping. it is monday, july 11th. >> i don't know what that means. >> we have msnbc -- well, yes. this is unusual. we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle, john heilemann. what's so funny? >> yeah, what's so funny? i don't get it. he's back. >> we can't get him to leave. we have "morning joe" economic analyst steve rattner and in washington
minutes that window was big enough and right in time for the shuttle to take off today. >> chad, same kind of rules apply, weather standards for the landing that's coming in 12 days? >> a little bit even -- i would say a little bit more conditional on the rain factor because it's a bigger circle. right now all we had to do was shoot this thing straight up. when we land this thing it has to be very dry. you can't have showers around it. think of a dry day in florida in the summertime. you have to go up edwards, one time to white sands but you cannot fly the shuttle because it's screaming hot. thousands of degrees, you can't bly that through a rain shower. the criteria more tense, harder to get through to land this thing back here at kennedy, but they have a big time -- they're going to have a big-time party when this thing finally does come back here. >> chad myers, appreciate that breakdown. good to see you, as always. thanks to our john zarrella. eight minutes past the hour. >>> sound effect is the u.s. labor market sputtering to a virtual standstill. as you know by now, the economy added
carry out india's worst militant attack since 2008? big dreams from a tiny island. one of the world's smallest countries hoping for olympic success. hello. it could be another landmark moment in the phone-hacking scandal. we should know very seen whether the media tycoon rupert murdoch has agreed to be questioned by members of british parliament. his son, james, and rebecca brooks have also been invited to appear before the hearing. we can go live to westminster. it feels like we're on the deadline hour for learning whether rupert murdoch is going to say yea or nay to appearing. i don't suppose many are expecting him to say oh, go on then. >> i don't think so. for one thing, the parliamentary committees do not have the same powers as congressional committees and certainly they cannot force foreign citizens like rupert and james murdoch to appear before them. there is even a question mark over whether they can really force rebecca brooks, who of course is a british citizen to appear. if anyone buzz does of the three, it is thought that perhaps she will be the most likely. the lawyers
on that in just a moment. i wish i could say there's big news about the debt ceiling talks. i can't tell you that. there's more drama than dealing going on in d.c. right now. a fifth round of talks is set for today. but yesterday didn't go so well. house republicans called for a short-term extension and house majority leader eric cantor says this is what the president said in response. quote, don't call my bluff, eric. and then he walked out a few minutes later. president obama said all along he'd veto any short-term measure. ed administration says failure to raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling by august 2nd could trigger a partial default on the part of the united states. thanks to that debt ceiling issue and the possibility of default you're on notice. i'm on notice. everyone from maine to san diego is on in. moody's investor services, the debt rating agency plans to review the nation's aaa bond rating and might downgrade it from stable to negative. standard & poors has the u.s. bond rating under review. let's talk about foreclosures for a second. realty track, the company that tracks the for

this is a big piece of the engine block that was blown off. it's not because they ran it out of oil. they didn't change the oil. as your engine produces different particulants, you want to pick that up and take it down to the oil pan to the oil filter. so the moral of the story is, if you don't want to see your engine in a commercial with me and jim, make sure you get the works done. the works. oil change, tire rotation, $29.95 or less after rebate. only at your ford dealer. this good. this not no, it's just for new people. hey ! chocolate, vanilla or strawberry ? chocolate ! chocolate it is ! yeah, but i'm new, too. umm... he's new... er... than you. even kids know it's wrong to treat new friends better than old friends. at ally bank, we treat all our customers fairly, with no teaser rates and no minimum deposit to open. it's just the right thing to do. woman: saving for our child's college fund was getting man: yes it was. so to save some money, we taught our 5 year old how to dunk. woman: scholarship! woman: honey go get him. anncr: there's an easier way to save. get online. go to geico.co

heated yesterday between obama and eric cantor. while they bicker, the big three credit rating agencies are warning the aaa bond status could be at risk. the debt ceiling deadline, as you may know, is august 2nd, but the president set tomorrow for the deadline to see if a grand bargain is possible, if not a bare bones bargain. if not, payments to critters, bill payments, you name it, there is not enough income to cover all that. every month we come up $125 billion short. if we cannot borrow to bridge the cap, 40% of the monthly obligations could not be paid, and that could include social security checks due to go out on august 3rd. the stakes we just laid out are monumental, so both sides have to give ground and risk their jobs for the good of the country. what is so hard about that, right? joining me with their insights on conflict resolution are cnn contributor, pete dominic, and family law attorney, mrs. winestein. what does it take for two entrenched parties to agree on a deal that both need? >> well, you know, the obvious is that you take the emotion out of the room and you try to
that would have reduced spending by $4 trillion over the next decade. but if mr. boehner wanted to do a big deal, the majority leader eric cantor threw cold water all over it saying that the congressional republicans would reject any revenue increases as part of the deal. as for the president, he said that he is willing to take political hits from his own party, but not at the expense of struggling americans. >> i am prepared to take on significant heat from my party to get something done. i expect the other side should be willing to do the same thing if we are going to actually solve the problem, there are finite number of ways to do it. if you don't have revenues, it means you are putting more of a burden on the people who can least afford it. that's not fair. >> nbc's kristen welker is live at the white house. kristen, the president spoke about his willingness to take in his words significant heat from his own party in reaching a compromise, and he was clearly suggesting that the republicans must do the same, but will they? >> well, it is an interesting question at this point the two sid
